Welcome to RIBnet!

Venturer Rescue One looks like a serious bit of kit. I know at least one person will be along shortly drooling all over it!

What Venturers do:

We are a teenage organisation dedicated to helping humans and animals in danger or distress on land or at sea.

Basically, teenage crews are trained up to be competant, capable young people and then they perform rescues whilst the adults sit in the background.

It was founded on the idea that given the training, oppertunity and trust teenagers could provide a worthwile service as opposed to mug old ladies!

It has done me wonders and i love it, it is the best thing i ever did!!!

Our crews are often complemented on seamanship skills etc.

Basically. teenagers + boat + high quality training = Venturers Search and Rescue.

Hope this helps?

Matt
